Roleplay / Witch Quest

Go To
Not exactly a happy quest.

Witch Quest is a Puella Magi Madoka Magica quest run on by Chibi-Reaper, a healing-type writer. Readers vote on the actions that Rochelle, the sane Witch Of Regret, will take.

Rochelle is a Giant Spider Witch who, for reasons unknown, is both sane and has been caught up in Homu-Napalm's time loops. After being killed off a few times after the readers saw the quest as a comedy series, people began to take it seriously and started to earnestly try to get a good ending for everyone. Unfortunately for Rochelle, not everyone takes kindly to random spanners being thrown into their plans, and so Rochelle finds herself having to stay alive while trying to help everyone, despite Napalm's constant attempts to kill her, Walpurgisnacht's deadline and the Cosmic Deadline of Madoka's canon wish. Oh, and Kyubey wants to do SCIENCE on her to find out what makes her tick.


The quest ran for a year before being abandoned in 2013.

Witch Quest provides examples of:

  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: Every now and then Chibi gives the readers a segment from the point of view of another character. No voting for their actions though.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: And then Rochelle was a wish-granting being.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Rochelle wanted her family to be at peace. The Incubator obliged.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: Kyubey speculates this to be the case (perhaps "grown beyond her instincts") for Rochelle, as he had never heard of a witch like her before.
  • Heroic BSoD: Many.
    • Not including the one that started the quest, after Rochelle's wish was twisted into killing her family, the most obvious one is Mami's constant breakdowns when the nature of magic girls is revealed.

    • Rochelle herself has a major one when loop 5 ended, after Mami, the one person who had gotten close to her over the last loops was left behind in the looping.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Rochelle wishes her powers came with an instruction booklet. As do the voters.
  • The Igor: Igor, a hunchbacked man who serves as one of Francine's manservants and medical assistants. He's just faking the lisp for effect, though, much to Francine's irritation.
  • Intimate Healing: Turns out Witches can absorb grief to become stronger, who would have thought. Turns out Rochelle is a witch. Turns out the Puellas would often like to take advantage of that skill to be less dependent on Grief Seeds. The only thing standing between them and free grief drain is the level of trust they have, given that Rochelle has to take their soul gem and stick it into her mouth to suck the grief out. A) She has very sharp teeth. B) She still is a witch, even a benevolent one, god knows what might go wrong. C) It feels like there are mouths, thousands of them, so many kisses, and you are inside a mouth, and it is so warm and close and they are everywhere touching your everyth-
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In loop 7, Rochelle and a few friends finally managed to put Napalm in a position where they had to talk things through. Napalm went on to offer to let Rochelle eat several cities as long as Rochelle didn't bother Madoka and herself any more. Neither Rochelle, nor the voters were pleased by this 'offer'.
